Gently Touch the Milkweed!

Dan and I picked this book up from a free table at the fabulous Chesterton European Market (if you came to visit me, it's about the only place I could take you so we'd have something cool to do). "But within the rough, ugly pods there were the soft spun-silver clouds of seeds, and she felt that within her own harsh shell there were also seeds of something beautiful..."

WOW! I can't believe the awesome crap I find sometimes!

But seriously, Milkweed- or Asclepias syriaca if you're a nerd like me, has such awesome flowers the whole premise doesn't make sense. Don't make me read it just to figure out this is some sort of ugly ducking in reverse thing...
